Michigan Kidnapping Defense Attorney

Where you accused of kidnapping?

Kidnapping is a serious criminal offense that will be harshly prosecuted. This involves taking and holding another person against their will by way of force, threats or fraud. A person may be taken to a location within or out of the state. Kidnapping may also occur when a non-custodial parent takes his or her child away from the custodial parent, without the permission or knowledge of the custodial parent. In these cases, the child may go willingly but this is still considered a form of kidnapping.

A Michigan criminal defense lawyer at the Freedman Law Group can help you if you or someone you know has been accused of kidnapping. We believe that you should fully understand your legal rights and your options in regards to your case. We will answer your questions and give you the personal attention you need and deserve. At the Freedman Law Group, we assist clients who are facing kidnapping charges throughout Michigan.

Enhanced Penalties for Kidnapping

Kidnapping charges become even more serious if the victim was abducted for the purpose of collecting ransom, committing a sex crime, forcing them into involuntary servitude or causing injury. In some states and under federal law, a person convicted of kidnapping may face the death penalty. The particular terms of the state's stance on kidnapping is outlined in the Michigan Penal Code §750.349.

Your attorney will need to get involved immediately if you are accused of committing kidnapping for ransom, or any other aggravated kidnapping charge. Even in the absence of factors that would result in enhanced penalties, your freedom is on the line. There may be evidence or witness testimony that can be uncovered that will prove your innocence or at the very minimum result in having condemning evidence suppressed during trial. Until you have a Michigan criminal defense lawyer review your case, however, you never know what can be done to help. Contact a Michigan criminal defense attorney for a free case evaluation.
